Aside from being a source food and fiber for cloth and paper, our whole flax seed for sale has been used for other practical purposes. During times of flood, for example, flax seed has been stuffed into sacks to absorb water and purposely block drains to reduce the threat of sewer backup. Once the floodwater receded, a string tied to the sack ensured its later retrieval.
